Madeleine Albright, first female US secretary of state, dies at 84******


In this file photo taken on August 20, 1998, then US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright speaks to reporters at the White House on the US attack of a terrorist base in Afghanistan.

Madeleine Albright, who came to the United States as a child refugee and rose to be the first female secretary of state, shaping American foreign policy at the end of the 20th century, has died at the age of 84.

Tapped by President Bill Clinton as ambassador to the United Nations then as the US top diplomat, Albright was one of the most influential stateswomen of her generation.

In mourning her passing, Clinton said Albright had been "a force for freedom, democracy and human rights," calling her death an "immense loss to the world."

President Joe Biden said Albright had "turned the tide of history," adding that she "defied convention and broke barriers again and again."

At the United Nations, the Security Council observed a moment of silence.

Clinton, announcing his choice of Albright to head the State Department in 1997, said gender "had nothing to do with her getting the job" and she was the most qualified candidate.

Albright, however, was aware of the significance of the appointment.

"It used to be that the only way a woman could truly make her foreign policy views felt was by marrying a diplomat and then pouring tea on an offending ambassador's lap," she once said in a speech to the Women in Foreign Policy Group.

"Today, women are engaged in every facet of global affairs."

Albright took the helm of the State Department in a post-Cold War world in which the United States had emerged as the sole superpower, leading crucial discussions with world leaders on arms control, trade, terrorism and the future of NATO.

Not since Margaret Thatcher governed Britain had a woman held such a position of global influence.

Born Marie Jana Korbelova in Czechoslovakia on May 15, 1937, Albright came to the United States as a refugee with her family in 1948 and became a US citizen in 1957.

Her father, Josef Korbel, a diplomat, had converted from Judaism to Catholicism after the family fled to London in 1939 to escape the Nazis.

Albright said she only learned about her Jewish origins late in life and the fact that three of her grandparents had perished in concentration camps.

'Short, noisy type'

Fluent in English, Czech, French and Russian, Albright earned her undergraduate degree from Wellesley College.

She earned her doctorate in political science at Columbia University and went to work for Democratic senator Edmund Muskie.

She later joined the National Security Council in the White House of President Jimmy Carter, serving under his national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, her former professor at Columbia.

After Carter's defeat, Albright began teaching at Georgetown University in Washington but remained an influential voice in Democratic foreign policymaking circles.

She was named US ambassador to the United Nations by Clinton in 1993 and served in that role until 1997, when she became secretary of state.

Albright married Joseph Albright in 1959. They had three daughters and divorced in 1982.

Her memoir, "Madam Secretary," was published in 2003.

She also wrote a book about her huge collection of brooches which, she explained to Smithsonian magazine in 2010, sometimes were "reflective of whatever issue we're dealing with."

"In every role, she used her fierce intellect and sharp wit – and often her unmatched collection of pins – to advance America's national security and promote peace around the world," Biden said.

Sevilla ride their luck to confirm candidacy for LaLiga title******

MADRID, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- Sevilla rode their luck, especially in the first half, to win 1-0 away to Athletic Club Bilbao to confirm their candidacy for this season's LaLiga title.。

Thomas Delaney's magnificent 36th minute shot into the top corner of the goal -- Sevilla's only shot all game, gave his side all three points against a rival that hit the woodwork twice through Dani Garcia and Unai Vencedor and missed several other good chances to take at least a point from the game.。

Sevilla remain second in the league table, five points behind Real Madrid, while Athletic are eight games without a win.。

Valencia continue to climb the table, although coach Jose Bordalas was sidelined with COVID-19 for their 2-1 win at home to Elche.。

Elche were close to taking a vital point in their battle against relegation when Lucas Boye's 75th minute strike cancelled out Goncalo Guedes' powerful 23rd minute opener for the home side.。

Elche were looking for a winner but were caught out by Cristiano Piccini's powerful volley following a corner four minutes from time.。

The visitors thought they had equalized for a second time just moments later, but video images failed to clear up whether or not Guido Carillo's effort had crossed the line.。

Alaves striker Joselu scored the equalizing goal for his side and also overtook Javi Moreno as the club's all-time top scorer in LaLiga in the process as the side from Vitoria drew 1-1 at home to Getafe.。

Getafe led thanks to Enes Unal's 20th minute goal and looked as if they were going to hang on for three vital points until Joselu side-footed home from close range with just four minutes left.。

Levante remain without a win this season after a topsy turvy game saw them beaten 4-3 away to Espanyol.。

Sergi Darder put Espanyol ahead in the sixth minute, but in a chaotic game Levante turned it around thanks to Jorge de Frutos and Son and had chances to move further ahead before halftime.。

Raul de Tomas equalized for Espanyol four minutes into the second half and although Jose Luis Morales put Levante back in front in the 57th minute, that lead only lasted three minutes before Javi Puado drew Espanyol level and then scored the winning goal in the 76th minute.。

On Friday night Mallorca and Celta drew a game badly affected by strong winds 0-0. Enditem。
